Donald Trump is “not a fan” of Samuel L. Jackson, he claims in a tweet, not least because Jackson does “too many commercials.” (Note: How does Donald Trump find time to watch so much TV? And doesn’t he have DVR? What’s the sense of being a billionaire if you can’t at least skip the commercials?) Anyway, Trump’s anti-Jackson tweet is a retort to Jackson’s accusation that one of Trump’s golf clubs (Trump National) incorrectly charged him for a membership. But Jackson also said he was a better golfer than Trump, which probably got deeper under Trump’s skin than the faulty bill.
I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven’t played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.

Jackson told a funny anecdote on Seth Meyers’ show after Meyers brought up the fresh Trump v. Jackson feud. Once, according to Jackson, he was playing golf at one of Trump’s clubs when the special guest was Bill Clinton. Clinton was cold on the course that day and Trump, according to Jackson, gave the ex-president a nice Trump jacket from the gift shop. Meyers hoped aloud that Bill Clinton might confirm that Jackson and Trump are acquainted, contradicting Trump’s claim.
